Are you familiar with that fun children’s book by Peggy Rathmann, Good Night, Gorilla, in which it’s bedtime at the zoo, and all the animals are going to sleep? Or as the the book asks us, “Or are they?” Here’s your and your family’s chance to get as close to that book being a reality as possible – minus the gorilla pickpocketing the guard’s keys, of course — and say good night to the giraffes and other animal friends at the zoo. NPT is proud to be a media sponsor of Zzzoofari Slumber — Saturday-Sunday, September 1-2 — an overnight camp session at the Nashville Zoo for families or escorted children (recommended ages 4-12 years old). Each camp session is designed to give campers an outdoors adventure in a zoo-nique setting while offering some additional camping standards, such as roasting marshmallows and outdoor play.
It’s a zoo-nique camping experience as you sleep under the stars just a short distance away from the snoozing animals. Enjoy a variety of activities that may include:
- Private Keeper Talks
- Animal Presentations
- Crafts & More
The event will run from from 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 1 to 9:00 a.m on Sunday, September 2. The price for Nashville Zoo Members (4 and up is $30 per person; Non Zoo Members are $40 per person Groups of 8 or more are $25 per person. You can reserve online or by phone at 615-833-1534 ext 138.
